Great Reasons To Buy A Home

Are you currently renting and are considering purchasing a home? Let me provide you some compelling reasons to go ahead and make that purchase.


  • Historically low interest rates – around 5.5 percent in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
  • Tax Credit – U.S. government is currently offering an $8,000 tax credit for qualifying first time buyers.
  • Equity Buildup – nationwide homeowners enjoy an average net worth of $184,000 vs. $4,000 for renters.
  • Tax Deduction Advantages – property tax and mortgage interest write offs.
  • Real Cost Of Renting – at $800 per month, with an average 6 percent rental increase each year, you will pay $126,536 over a 10 year period but have zero ownership in the property.
  • Pride Of Home Ownership – it’s your personal haven and you’re your own landlord.
  • Quality Of Life – a home provides stability and security for you and your loved ones.


I am prepared to assist you in searching for and purchasing residential properties on the Missouri side of the Kansas City metropolitan area (Platte, Clay, and Jackson counties).
